Curious: Child of the Jotun

I just discovered this book today. And this cover totally got my attention. So pretty.. And at the same time the story takes place in Norway as far as I understood :)

They say giants carved this land . . .

In a cloistered Dominican convent in California, Sister Jennifer is informed by police that a terror from her past has been released from prison. Police assure her that she will be protected, but she knows the danger coming for her. Her prioress seeks a convent somewhere in the world to send the fearful nun for her safety. A convent in Norway answers the call.

In Norway, the Sister meets an eccentric man that sets off an internal conflict, but when the man, Torvør, begins to draw her emotions and ignite her independence, everything she has believed in is challenged. The ancient gods of the north have also observed her arrival, and their power pulls Jennifer from her safe life, closer to Torvør.

Can their friendship stop the tragic completion of an apocalyptic saga written by an Icelandic monk 1000 years ago? Or will the end come in a bargain to save her Sisters and friends from the wrath of the ancient gods?

Torvør knows the truth and has only a short time to convince the Sister that she is not a servant of God, but a god herself

Summary: (from Goodreads)
Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

My Opinion:
If your in for a almost only clean romance book, with a dose of paranormal. This is the book for you ;) This book has young love in an unatural way, soulmate, read you mind kind of a love. That makes you forget about how real love actually is. But it´s nice to get lost in the extreme paranormal love that excist in some of the books, incl. this one
And at the same time they made it with loads of funny comments. So was laughing out loud several times, while reading this book.

I gave this book a big 4 out of 6 stars.

The thing who makes it down a bit is that the amount of love in this love story is not realistic. But the humor in the book is a big + :)
So looking forward to reading the sequel. And hoping for just as many good laughs :)
